DeMatha reaches title game
Stags to face KIMA Public Charter School for Rock League championship
by Terron Hampton | Staff Writer
Two Prince George's County basketball teams had a shot to reach the title game of the
Rock Summer League, but only one made it.
Led by a complete team effort, DeMatha High advanced to the finals with a 58-47 victory
against Towson High School. The Rock League final could have been an all-Washington
Catholic Athletic Conference matchup, but Bishop McNamara lost, 48-46 to the District's
KIMA Public Charter School on a last-second shot.
DeMatha will take on KIMA in the league final at 7 p.m. Tuesday at High Point High
School in Beltsville.
Sophomore guard James Robinson led the Stags with 13 points, while junior guard Quinn
Cook and senior guards Victor Oladipo and David Naves each chipped in with eight
points. Senior guard Jerian Grant added seven points, and the Stags never trailed en route
to the victory.
Meanwhile, McNamara was paced by 14 points from senior Marcus Pilgrim while
teammates Percy Davis and Marcus Thornton added eight and six points, respectively.
Junior guard Ibn Muhammad scored six points.
